Duopa Treatment for PD

Duopa is a prescription medicine used for treatment of motor fluctuations in advanced Parkinson's disease

 

Duopa, however, is not a pill

Aldred Selkirk Duopa

Duopa is a gel form medication, called a suspension, of continuous carbidopa and levodopa to alleviate your symptoms of PD.

 

Duopa is delivered by a pump placed in the abdomen to allow direct access to your intestines for dosing. 

Selkirk Neurology collaborates with an interventional radiology team to place tubing and begin treatment, with all medication adjustments and quality continuity of care managed by your provider and our clinic staff 

Duopa treatment can provide continuous dopamine stimulation; producing more normal movement and significantly decrease the frequency of your need for oral medication
